Client Services/Vet Assistant

I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC.  I have grown up around animal my entire life.  Working with animals and being able to treat them is an incredibly rewarding feeling.  Our clients are amazing and seem more like family.  Every day after work, I get to go home to my 2 dogs, Rupert, my 5 yr old Great Dane mix and Dirk "Weiner Dog" my 17 yr old dachshund.  We love being outside, either working in the yard or just lounging in the sun.  Whenever there is an opportunity, we all load up in the car and hit the road!

Veterinary Assistant

I have been in the veterinary field for a little over 15 years now and is still a huge passion of mine!  I love being able to help healthy pets stay healthy and help sick pets get better. I especially have an interest in Veterinary Dermatology. Educating clients is also very important to me. I have 2 dogs, a Pomeranian named Sir Puppy Winchester and a miniature American Eskimo named Arctic. I like spending time with my dogs, family & friends, as well as, reading, hunting for antiques, and visiting museums.
